6/11/17 Meeting Summary
It was noted that John and Jane Williams transferred to First MYrtle Beach, Lorraine Gjertsen is transferring to Clairmont Presbyterian in Atlanta but wishes to remain at LMPC as an affiliate member. Kathleen Wilkins Miller is also transferring. Deacons reported 52 contacts. The Honor Tower is dedicated and we are working through a final punch list. HVAC was working slow Sunday- we hope to put in a new HVAC in two weeks and fix the old one for now. Elizabeth Bemis is the new CE chair as Zeta Hastings is our new Youth Director; Taylor Rider is our associate youth Director. It is noted that this will elevate the budget somewhat ($3k) but we think we can handle this difference. NWC recommended we form a PNC search committee to find an evangelist for the daughter church- session approved unanimously. Worship voted to move communion to the 2nd Sunday to not interfere with Kirkin.
